XpertHR International manual contains employment law guides for 43 countries. Our latest guide, added in April, covers employment law in the United Kingdom. Each country guide provides a summary of key regulatory requirements that employers need to know, covering essential topics such as recruitment, employee rights, pay and benefits, and termination.
Our country guides are reviewed each month by local lawyers with employment law expertise. Information about updates made to the guides is set out in our daily topic alerts and monthly newsletter. In May, the Saudi Arabia guide was updated to include information on the introduction of Saudisation" in the mobile phone sector. Among other updates to the country guides, details of revised rates for social security benefit during parental leave and social security wages guarantee in the event of insolvency have been added in the Bulgaria guide. In addition, the Sweden guide was revised to reflect new regulations relating to work environment management.
As the EU has had an extensive influence on employment law in the UK, the consequences of a "Brexit" could be significant. Our hot topic rounds up XpertHR resources on the EU referendum.
